  • PCI Statement on House Tax Reform Proposal
  • WASHINGTON — Nat Wienecke, senior vice president of federal government relations at the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) issued the following statement commending the release of the House tax reform proposal.

    “We applaud Chairman Brady and his staff for their hard work on this historic legislation. Fundamental tax reform, including the reduction in the corporate tax rate, is a high priority because it will help the property casualty industry be more competitive, which will ultimately benefit American consumers. The property casualty industry particularly appreciates that the legislation takes into account the industry’s unique regulatory and business model. Comprehensive tax reform is essential to improving economic growth and creating more jobs. The Committee has made several improvements to the draft legislation and we hope to work with them to further improve the legislation and provide our strong support for its final passage.”
